Breckenridge stands apart from other towns in Colorado. This quaint, Victorian town is nestled in a high alpine valley at almost 10,000 feet in elevation. Breckenridge is removed from the hustle and bustle of Interstate 70 and is surrounded by the towering peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Breckenridge offers visitors an impressive array of activities, events, history, culture, nightlife and of course, world-class skiing and riding at Breckenridge Ski Resort! Even though Breckenridge is just a short drive from Denver, it is truly a world apart.
